Do babies grow up in heaven? (warning DD pics)

 Each new life... No matter how fragile or brief... Forever changes the world

 

Verse...  "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" Matthew 5:4

Thought for today...  "Dear Lord, I would have loved to have held my babies on my lap and tell them about you, but since I didn't get the chance, would you please hold them on your lap and tell them about me?"

Song...   This is a really great song...  http://youtu.be/oBWyHNf_SSM

Do Babies Grow Up in Heaven?


by Unknown


Will I know my baby when we meet again?

Will he have grown up, not be the infant that died in my arms?

Will I recognize him, be able to find him among so many others?

Or will he be a stranger to me, not knowing who I am,

or me knowing him?



Do babies grow up in heaven?

He never got his first tooth, or said his first words.

No first shoes, no Santa, no first birthday cake.

Will my son still be a baby when we meet again?



Do babies grow up in heaven?

Who sings him precious lullabies?

Who holds him close and kisses him everyday?

Who tells him constantly that they love him?



Do babies grow up in heaven?

When we next meet, will he know me?

Will he want to know me?

Will he be my son who died at three months, or a man, fully grown?

Will I have the joy of being a mother to my son for all eternity?



Do babies grow up in heaven?

Will I be able to hold him, love him, sing lullabies to him?

Will I be able to hold his tiny hand, or will it be a man's hand?

Will I ever have the joy that only holding my son can bring?

I need to know! In heaven, is my baby still a baby?

I am a married mom of 3 beautiful earthly DD's ages 15 yrs, 6 yrs and 11 months. I am the mom of 5 angel babies (CP, 7 wks, 8 wks, 18 wks, and 14 wks losses)

    Where did you find this poem? It must have been written by someone that has known my situation. I've asked myself the questions from this poem over and over again. I know my little girl will be waiting for me but I wonder if she was be a woman when I meet her... I only know that now I have to do everything possible to make it to heaven to be with her when it's my time. God bless you and your family.
